'Holst - The Planets' performed by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra at Birmingham Symphony Hall. If you've not been to a classical concert before this would be a good introduction. 

I will be booking the cheaper seats in the grand tier which is high up but the sound is still excellent. Ticket cost is £30. Please contact me if you would like a ticket.
Location: Meet at Birmingham Symphony Hall outside the gift shop. The concert begins promptly at 19:30.

Event Programme,

Holst: The Perfect Fool: Ballet Music, 13’
Thomas Adès: Angel Symphony, 20’ (CBSO Centenary Commission: World Premiere)
Holst: The Planets, 55’

MarsVenusJupiter… everyone has their favourite bit of The Planets. But there’s far more to Holst’s masterpiece than just great melodies, and tonight, 100 years after Birmingham heard The Planets for the first time, Mirga and the CBSO introduce Thomas Adès’ Angel Symphony, specially created for the CBSO’s Centenary celebrations: a new work from the dazzling imagination behind the hit opera The Exterminating Angel.
